Neck injury and whiplash injury compensation following an accident

Neck injuries are most commonly caused by some type of accident, such as a heavy fall or car accident. The sudden jerking of the head, back and forth causes damage to the neck, known as a whiplash injury.

Whiplash is a neck injury where the ligaments that connect the neck to the spinal cord are stretched or torn. A whiplash neck injury can be very painful and can affect your ability to walk, stand normally and move around. The symptoms usually develop over the 24 to 72 hours following the accident.

People who may have sustained a whiplash or neck injury of any kind should not be moved, unless there is an immediate threat to their life, as permanent damage could be caused to their spine. If moving them becomes necessary, ensure the head and neck is supported so that it remains in a straight line with the body.

Different neck injuries require different treatments and you should always seek the advice of your GP following an injury to the neck, to ensure you receive the proper treatment and advice to help your recovery.
